Poor 2.0
Very uncomfortable bed
The place looks nice on the outside, and is located in a posh neighborhood. Unfortunately, those are the only good things. The beds are very uncomfortable. Poor back support. The sheets are coarse, and not ventilated; they are rough on the skin, and cause you to sweat after just a few minutes. Imagine sleeping here in the summer! The toilets and showers are tiny, with very little space to move around.
